to debate and to discuss the important issues facing the world at the united nations general assembly. while there will be a variety of issues on the agenda this year, i'm extremely concerned about one issue specifically. over the last several months, palestinian authority president abbas has repeatedly voiced his intention to formally request statehood recognition and full membership in the united nations. in july, the arab league endorsed this irresponsible ploy. regrettably, president abbas intends to make the former request during this session of the united nations general assembly. i oppose the decision of the palestinian authority to seek a declaration of statehood by the united nations. the unilateral action of the palestinian authority is intended to circumvent the peace process. it is not a good-faith effort to achieve peace in the middle east but to me, rather, it is a political maneuver. the united nations should not be interfering or intervening in this complex process and should refrain from passing unilateral delegations on -- declarations on issues that are part of ongoing dir

before. there's an important week coming up, the general assembly for the united nations. talk us through why next week is so important and why we should be focused on what's happening specifically with our ally israel. >> well, this is the week when all the heads of state and government come 20 a-- come to address the general assembly, president obama will speak on wednesday. it's going to be a bad week for israel. number one, we've got the so-called durbay-3 conference which will reamp the declaration reached in durbin, south africa that says israel is a racist state and therefore illegitimate and the palestinians apparently defying the obama administration's wish, they're going to press their resolution, whether in the general assembly or the security council to have palestine quote unquote declared a state and if they run there that through the general assembly they will prevail. so it's a lot of efforts at the political level, at the u.n., to isolate israel, to make life very difficult for it, combined with the strategic uncertainty militarily and politically in the region. i think i

danger. >> daily flashback to 2002 when president george w. bush told the u.n. general assembly that the u.s. was prepared to act militarily against iraq and wander if necessary the u.s. would act without the united nations. >>> well, tonight in tampa, florida, the republican presidential candidates square off in their second debate in five days. expect another food fight over social security, among other things. jamal simmons is a principal at the raven group. did we get it right? >> you got it light. >> lois row mano and we'll be joined by jennifer reuben who writes for "the washington post" but we've got a little traffic issue this morning. lois, let's start with you and the president and this pitch that he's going to make today, sort of the first -- the second full-throated pitch. with brian williams he called it an insurance policy against a double-dip recession. in an odd way i think that almost raises the stakes for passage or non-passage of this bill. >> i think it's all about the passage for him. what his whole strategy is relying on is emotions, is getting the american
